3:00 am
hey, good morning. welcome to december. it's sunday, december the 1st. 20, 13. imwe begin with a holiday tragedy. the death is leaving hollywood stunned. we'll have the breaking details straight ahead. and fix or fail, the obama care deadline came and has gone. the deadline was yesterday. we'll tell you what the administration wouldn't tell you coming up. and it's being called the greatest football finish of all time.
3:01 am
to keep them t back 109 yards. off the field tonight. holy cow! >> wow. >> the improbable ending to the iesh bowl that has everyone talking this morning. unbelievable. fox and friends begins right now. welcome. you know, they're not kidding about football in allabama. >> no. >> crazy day in the football world and craze any day in hollywood. >> thanks for being with us. we start with the hollywood tragedy. paul walker was killed in a crash. >> he was riding in a friend's car and it hit a light pole and burst into flames. walker was best known for his role in the "fast and furious" movies. he was about to attend a charity
3:02 am
event in l.a. for his organization, reachout worldwide. this photograph of him getting into the car, it is the last known picture of him alive. >> well, hollywood is reacting this morning. vin diesel saying this. brother, i will miss you very much. i am absolutely speechless. heaven has gained a new angel. rest in peace. >> franco tweeted, much love to paul walker. so sad. he gave a lot of joy. >> dwayne johnson. all my strength, love and faith to the walker family during his heartbreaking time. paul walker leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter. >> at the scene they weren't sure whether or not it was -- they saw donuts, figure 8s burned rubber on the scene near the accident scene. they weren't sure whether it was related to that accident or not. that -- the miles per hour was 45 miles per hour and it was right about 300 yards from where the charity event under the
3:03 am
tents was set to take place. when authorities showed up, everything was on fire. they had a hard time even identifying the bodies. >> so ironic. well, one day after the white house's self-imposed dead line to fix the obama care website, congress set to give a progress report. a press conference is coming up. peter doocy has been following this. latest for us. good morning, peter. >> good morning, tucker. they said healthcare.gov would be working smoothly for people. however, i am not one of them. a screen informed me that the verification system is temporarily unavailable and that the problem should be resolved in the next 24 hours. that was it. end of the road for that application this morning. there was another smaller problem with the application earlier on. one of the first screens wanted
3:04 am
to know if the navigator or an insurance agent was helping me fill out the application. i clicked none of the people were helping me yet the banner at the top of the screen that followed said that i had just told the website another person was, in fact, helping me fill out the application. i tried it three times. same message every time. with that said, two months after the big launch of health ca care.gov is faster. federal officials are going to hold a conference call later on this morning to provide a an update. they said their goal is for 50,000 consumers to be able to use the website simultaneously. that would be 800,000 people a day. that is capacity they will need to enroll just under 7 million people in the next 120 days. back to you in new york. >> peter, how many times have you tried the site to fit out
3:05 am
the application. >> a lot. many dozen, maybe more than 100. >> you're a goodman, peter doocy. >> he keeps trying. that's what i love about peter. >> i think i can. i think i can. i think i can. >> they think journalists have an easy job but they don't know what peter doocy is doing. >> meanwhile, monday will be the real test. we thought it was bad this weekend, higher than normal traffic this weekend. monday, tomorrow, will be the real test of this website. >> yeah, experts are saying once the weekday traffic, what they're expecting to have on a weekly basis, once that's in place, that will be the real test. >> will anyone notice? the white house is taking a page from history. there are many indications it won't work. the only question for the white house politically is will the press repeat this claim that it works and there is a long
3:06 am
history here of people declaring victory even falsely? bill clinton didn't win the new hampshire primary in 1992. the viet cong didn't win. the history says the opposite, they declared victory. >> i find this kind of deceitful really. >> you think? to me it's like putting lipstick on a pig. we're able to handle 800,000 folks. we told you we could only get 50,000. users will be able to fill out applications, compare plans, etc. when we talk to experts, we know the back end infrastructure is still hampered. we know getting payments out to the insurance companies is still a mess. bottom line, the 834 applications is like a resume. you're filling out a personal resume. insurance companies are reporting when they get those copies of your resume sent to them, it's filled with all kinds of errors. names are wrong, phone numbers are wrong and in many cases there are double applications being returned to them.
3:07 am
imagine the december 23rd deadline you have to deal with as an insurance company. you don't have the phone number to make a phone call. that's not working. the infrastructure is not working. the front end looks pretty. >> they will fix it. you have people chepg in from all kinds of big tech companies. they have an unlimited budget. they have the federal budget to fix. it's a problem they have. the real question in the end is does obama care provide better coverage for less cost? the opposite appears to be true. it's going to cost the average person more to receive more limited service. so the whole thing is a failure whether the website works. >> there's an article in the wall street journal that talks about once people start to see what the healthcare.gov plan has to offer, they'll see that
3:08 am
they're paying for first class air seats but they're getting coach seats. they're not getting more bang for their buck. >> "the wall street journal" editorial page said on friday, the reason the furor will continue even if the website is fixed is that the public is learning that obama care's insurance costs more in return for worse coverage, regulators mandated a very rich level of essential health benefits that all plans in the individual market must cover regardless of cost. the piece says this will hit the middle class the hardest. unlike people in the job system, they pay with after tax dollars. now they're being forced to pay for less coverage at a higher rate and subsidize those that
3:09 am
don't have it. >> that's exactly it. they're not obama voters in the first place. there's a political reality. obama voters are getting more than they had more than before but the people who didn't vote for obama are paying the price for all of this. i mean, he's safe in doing this. it doesn't hurt his coalition. >> one thing that sticks out, parents get free pediatric vision care but they can't take their child to a specialist if their kids gets really sick. >> there's a bunch of lobbyists who included this. how great would it be to force the government to pay for your services. >> more on this coming up on the show. we'll test the website. let's get right to your other headlines this morning. an 85-year-old u.s. war veteran

welcome back. the nfl season is over for jonathan martin. he's the player at the center of the dolphins bullying controversy. they're putting him on a noninjury list. this comes one day after they suspended ritchie incognito's suspension. he walked away from the team a month ago in a highly publicized move. despite the chaos of black friday, $12.3 million was spent on black friday. this was up 2.3% from last year. however, since so many stores did open on thursday itself, actual black friday sales was down by more than 13%.
3:25 am
well, the deadline for the problematic obama care website passed yesterday. they're saying it performed well under new servers and updates. >> can we believe them and what is the next move for republicans? let's ask republican representative jack kingston. good morning, congressman, how are you? >> good morning. it's great to be with you guys. >> now we've heard you seau bomb ma care is something that needs to be repealed and replaced but then in a recent radio interview you said it's not the responsible thing to do so let obama care fail on its own. what do you mean by that? >> well, i voted 40 times to kill obama care. i'm chairing the committee that actually defunds obama care. i voted to cancel out its forward appropriations funding, but at the same time i think if we just sit back and just hope it falls apart is the wrong thing. if it's teetering near the edge of the cliff, we should go ahead and push it over. what i have done is introduced two bills, one that says that
3:26 am
the president and all of his political appointees would have to enroll obama care. i don't think they would like that. i've also introduced a bill that says the definition of small business for obama care would be the same one that the small business administration uses. you know, what liberals always do, they don't always say we're going to grab one-fifth of the economy at once. they work on this for years and years and years. so we have to dismantle this piece by piece if that's the card we're going to have to play with the harry reid senate. >> guys, it seems inevitable that you will see medicare and medicaid expand in the wake of obama care and you're going to see a lot of doctors opt not to treat medicare and medicaid patients. how do conservatives respond to that? liberals will say they'll come pell doctors to expand it.
3:27 am
what's the marketplace for that? >> i don't see any way in the world. what i see is some of the best and brightest minds are no longer going into medicine not because of the reimbursement and compensation issue, because they don't want the government micromanaging their practice. what you see is the sons and date terse of doctors now going into finance and working on wall street. i think that's wrong they'll show that over and over again. the rollout was totally botched by the government. hhs says 106,000 people have enrolled over 7 million. less than 2% have enrolled. that's why i think it would be great to put the president on obama care and have a picture of him sitting by the computer signing up with a smile on his face, a 10 or 15 minute process and telling everybody, it's fixed and ready to roll. >> our own peter doocy couldn't get online. i wonder if the president could

wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis ifyou have an artificial heart valve abnormal bleing. while taking eliquis, yomay bruise more easily and it m take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.

nice to see you, 51 minutes after the hour. alcohol is a familiar site at holiday celebrations. for many americans on
3:52 am
medication, it can be a deadly combination. dr. nina radcliffe is here. we need to look at the back of our labels. a lot of people end up drinking at this time of year that normally don't. >> correct. >> if you're taking sleeping pills, i recommend if you're going to raise your glass for a toast, you should wait six hours before taking a sleeping pill. i say this because the sedative effects can be compounded. you may feel lightheaded or dizzy. this can increase your chance for having a fall or an injury. >> is that you? you went into drug stores and you looked at the back of the labels. you did some research. prescription painkillers. >> an absolute no-no. this is a catastrophe waiting to happen. not only does it compound your sedative effects, but it can affect the way you sleep. absolutely no. >> sometimes we've heard of people abusing this, actually, and putting the two of those together on purpose. >> yes. yes. it's definitely -- that's why we
3:53 am
recommend absolutely no drinking when it comes to painkillers. >> next, we have blood pressure medications. a lot of americans are on those. you need to stay away from alcohol. can you even have one drink with those? >> well, that's difficult to say. in general alcohol decreases your blood pressure so if you're taking hypertension medication, this can exaggerate the response. you may feel lightheaded, you may feel dizzy and you could pass out. i want to point out, beta blockers, they're a special class of blood pressure medication and alcohol decreases the effects that it has on it. so people who take beta blockers many times have congestive heart failure, heart disease. we want these drugs to work. we don't want them to be under therapeutic. >> next up we have antidepressants. a lot of americans are on those as well. >> the good news is the new generation, ssris, zoloft and prozac, if you have a drink and you are on one of these medications, be cautious before driving. we do not want to have a car accident. >> what can happen when you mix the two? >> well, it can make you more
3:54 am
drowsy. it can make you more fatigued. if you get behind the wheel, you may have the effect for a longer period of time. >> okay. next up we have, let's see -- yeah, cholesterol lowering medication. >> you don't want to drink excessively. liver damage is one of the side effects that can happen with st statins. it can be that one-two punch that can take it out. >> if you're on a medication, you probably need to stay away from alcohol. seems like the top 20 most commonly used drugs are having issues. >> yeah, that is correct. you have to be very careful. this is your health we're talking about. yes, it is the holiday time. you want to raise your class, say cheers, be festive, you have to do it within moderation. if you have any questions, speak with your physician. speak with your pharmacist. don't take a chance with your observe health. >> what about certain populations that may be more vulnerable. for example, elderly americans i heard have -- they happen to be on six med kalications, a lot o
3:55 am
them. >> if you're over 65, the average number of prescriptions that you fill is 14. there's a likelihood one of these may interact with alcohol. one of the benefits, you don't have to be carded anymore but that your body does not clear alcohol as quickly. the problem is that you feel the effects more quickly and it lasts longer within your body. you have to be more cautious. >> a lot of times people go to the parties and they feel like a little bit concerned with the way that they're acting so that's why if they want to have alcohol, they want to use this as kind of a tool to make them feel good and want to be free to talk to people. what should we do instead? >> just have a good time. you're with your family and friends. it's a holidaytime. it's festive. you don't need to raise more than one glass of champaign. >> while you're at the holiday parties, what else do you recommend as far as making sure you don't pack on the pounds this holiday season? >> definitely in moderation. enjoy, indulge, but portion

hello and good morning. it is sunday the 1st of december, 2013.
4:00 am
i'm anna could i man. gre kooiman. ready or not, paul walker, actor from "fast and furious" has passed away in a fiery car crash. we have the breaking details coming up. >> and they say no good deed goes unpunished. well, some -- they're right. good deeds are almost always punished usually by the federal government. we have an appalling example for you. we'll bring it to you coming up. that's right. and one of the greatest football finishes of all time. watch this. >> they run it back 109 yards. they're not going to keep them off the field tonight! holy cow! >> the improbable ending to the iron bowl that has everyone talking this morning. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. hey, good morning.
4:01 am
hopefully everybody survived the family over the weekend. you have the biggest travel weekend of the year, wednesday true sunday. we have sad news to report this morning. >> shocking news out of hollywood. a tragedy overnight as actor paul walker was killed in a fiery car crash outside of los angeles. >> walker was riding in a friend's porch when ofrien friend's porsche. >> >> he included in all of the "fast and furious" films. he was an avid race car driver. >> photographer snapped this picture of him getting into that friend's porsche. this is the last picture of him it alive. >> from what i saw, when roger
4:02 am
was backing the car into the garage, paul wanted to go for a right. wanted to go for a ride in the car. that was it. >> hollywood is reacting this morning. vin deezle saying, brother, i will miss you very much. i am absolutely speechless. heaven has gained a new angel. rest in piece. >> gold did i hawn wrote, our family mourns the loss of paul a very special human being. >> carson daly. sick about the tragic loss ever paul walker. >> walker left behind a 15-year-old daughter. >> they thought speed was a factor. it was about 300 yards from the charity event. tents were set up. there were donuts of burned rubber. they weren't sure if it came from that car or not. paul walker wasn't driving that
4:03 am
car, his friend was at the time. >> how ironic. absolutely terrible. >> kiss your children. one day after the white house's self-imposed deadline to fix the obama care website, guess what? health officials set to give a progress report this morning because it's not fixed. conference call set a few hours from now. what can we expect? peter doocy is on that. he's joining us from washington with the very latest. peter, good morning. >> good morning, tucker. there have been quite a few problems with healthcare.gov this morning. now seven hours after their self-imposed midnight deadline to fix the website passed. most notably, problems with the verification system. it's unavailable right now. you can't submit an application without completing that critical step. i filled out an entire application almost until you get to the very end when you're told to come back in 24 hours when the problem with the verification system is figurxed. earlier there was a question about whether a navigator or
4:04 am
insurance agent was helping me standing over my shoulder. i said, no. the system didn't seem to understand that. a banner on the next page read, you told us another person is helping you complete the application. one additional problem, i received multiple erroneous e-mails today from healthcare.gov notifying me there's a marketplace message waiting but clicking on the accompanying link took me back to the home page, no personalized message. with that said, healthcare.gov is a lot faster today than it was exactly two months ago. it's much easier to sign into accounts and get general information about subsidies. the administration is honing that 50,000 people will be able to use the site at the same time starting today. that will be 800,000 consumers every day. they need to sign up close to 7 million consumers in the next 120 days. back to you in new york. >> peter doocy live in d.c. those 7 million folks who may or
4:05 am
may not sign up could be still facing a big security threat. a number of security analysts have come forward. in fact, morgan wright who is a security and tech expert who had testified on behalf of cyber security for health care.gov said this about the security problems that still exist for the website. listen to this. >> memorandums that were issued by the cis and cio who had to sign off signed off on a finding that said the threat and risk potential is limitless and gave cms until 2014 to fix it. that means right now that threat and risk potential is still limitless on november 30th. healthcare.gov has 500 million lines of code and it can handle 50 million people. facebook has only 20 million lines of code and they handle 700 million daily active users. you can do the math. >> one of the problems is verifying even the identity of
4:06 am
users and sometimes sending the wrong information to insurers. so, i mean, can you imagine giving your sensitive information, your social security number, your income, your health history, you're putting it out there and once it gets sent to the wrong person for everybody to see or, you know, what if it gets hacked into? >> dig through such facts. this is an administration that after 43 months and spending more money than the entire gdp in most african countries can't run a website and they want you to send your most intimate and personal information including your tax information, social security number, health information to them and they're going to keep it safe. >> right. >> i don't think so. >> no, but i love that the assessments, let's go back to this. the assessment is that the risk potential is still limitless. limitless. open to hackers. we know that other databases within the federal government have been hacked recently by the chinese government and not even state sponsored problems but even outside of the united states problems with security
4:07 am
hacking inside the united states databases. when you have this database problem still on the back end underneath healthcare.gov, it's not been fixed yet. the front end looks pretty. >> i don't think you've read the memo. the memo says obama care is a success. the website works. they declared victory. >> they set the bar so low. >> get in line. >> no, just obey. be quiet. stop asking inconvenient questions. this is the strategy. it works, ladies and gentlemen. what are the chances that most of the press will take this unpredictably and repeat it? about 100%. >> they already are. if you read some of the headlines and news reports on the web this morning, it's handling 800,000 people instead of the 50,000 that were initially reported. we had representative jack kingston on earlier this morning. he says, look, people need to experience, the president needs to personally sit down at this computer and experience the same things that our own peter doocy was trying to get on and log on this morning and couldn't get on and actually sign up. listen.
4:08 am
>> if you look at the rollout itself totally botched by the federal government, the numbers according to hhs, 106,000 people have enrolled right now out of potentially 7 million? less than 2% about able to enroll. that's why i think it would be a great idea to put the president under obama care and have a picture of him sitting by the computer signing up with a smiling on his face, maybe a 10 or 15-minute process and telling everybody, it's fixed and we're ready to roll. >> a month ago we heard that today we would be -- it would be fully functional, right? october the 1st we thought that it was going to be. then he came out and said december 1st it would be fully functional. then they moved the goalposts, kathleen sebelius said they would have a totally different user experience. 50,000 at a time, is that even enough snf with 800,000 as a goal? >> well, i mean, i think congressman kingston has it wrong.
4:09 am
obama care isn't for obama's family, it's for your family. gun control is for you, not for me. you don't want to live by the laws you pass or sign. i mean, that's super inconvenient. therefore, the teaming masses. good enough for you. more on this coming up later in the show. now we have some headlines this morning. >> here's what we can tell you. brand-new developments on the 85-year-old u.s. war veteran being held prisoner. the u.s. is urging for the immediate release of merill newman hours after he appeared in a video. his family is confirming the swedish ambassador has med with newman releasing this statement. we were very fleepleased to hea that the ambassador was allowed to pay this first visit to merill. they're urging for the release of another u.s. individual, kenneth bay. he's been held in north korea for over a year.

4:11 am
game-winning filed goal and auburn's chris davis takes it out of the end zone 109 yards. this is how it sounded on auburn radio. >> 56 yarder. no, does not happen. and chris davis takes it from the back of the end zone. he'll run it. 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50. 45. there goes davis. >> oh, my gosh. >> davis is going to run it all the way back! auburn is going to win the football game! auburn is going to win the football game! he ran the missed field goal back! >> if you've ever met an auburn fan, alabama fan for that matter, you know exactly what was happening in bars across the country last night. auburn will play missouri next week for a shot at the national title. those are your headlines. >> let's get it over to rick

4:18 am
is the president right, he'll go up? >> the other option is to go down. president obama's job approval ratings have been tracking very closely to george w. bush's ratings at the same time in their presidencies. as we know, bush's ratings went on down, down, down, 40, 35, 30 and then down all the way to 25%. so it's entirely possible that president obama's ratings could continue to go down. both men started at pretty high approval ratings and have been experiencing long, slow slides after that. >> is media coverage -- we saw the mainstream media jumping on this bandwagon finally and actually doing reports. we had mainstream media report injuries cisicitsit -- reporter sitting there trying to log on. has that waned? >> there's no doubt that's hurt quite a bit. there's been two elements to
4:19 am
that media coverage. one is they're covering the fact that the website didn't work and this grand program of president obama's, the center piece of his presidency doesn't work. the other issue was his own personal credibility which has been very damaging after that if you like your health care coverage you can keep it promise. people just don't believe he was telling the truth then and that has really hurt his ratings. >> how can this feekt the president now and actually let's look to 2014 for those running for re-election. he's not up to re-election. president obama doesn't have to worry about that. how will his approval ratings help or hurt those other democrats seeking re-election. >> the other interesting thing is job approval ratings do matter. politicians don't like to talk about them. they say the only poll that matters is on election day. it matters in terms of a president's clout in washington. when a president's ratings go below 40, if they're in the 30s, fewer people on capitol hill listen to him. fewer members of his own period
4:20 am
want him to campaign for them and he has less influence in trying to push his own agenda. we all know president obama would love to pass an immigration reform bill if possible. so those declining ratings actually do have an affect on the president's ability to do his job in washington. >> maybe hillary clinton was smart to leave office early, take a break early and let the dust settle. byron york from "the washington examiner" thank you for joining us. >> thank you, clayton. coming up, anything like this ever happen on your holiday road trip? >> my road rage, liver lips. >> next, dr. keith ablow has tips you need to avoid holiday road rage. could this be the reason why so many people showed up to protest walmart. this protester was admitting he was getting paid to be there. ♪ ♪ hi, i'm terry and i have diabetic nerve pain.

4:45 am
contributor father jonathan morse. good morning to you. is part of this that we're so detached from one another to facebook and twitter? >> i think there's a lot to that. there is a huge disconnectedness among people. let me give you an example. it used to be you knew the people you worked with because they grew up around you. you knew their parents and you knew their family. you knew them when they were kids. its a' so different now. now you know them just as they are right now, today, or over the last six months or year that you got to know them. it's very different. that disconnectedness makes trust hard. why? because trust has to do with getting to know somebody so well, so deeply and having gone through so much with them that you can predict what they will do in the future. that's trust. >> seems like -- it kind of seems odd given the fact that we think we're more connected now than ever before. smart phones, constantly online. constantly connected. texting friends, having that
4:46 am
communication. but really i guess in many ways this is leading to the larger disconnection. >> it's a good point and both of you brought that up about facebook, twitter. every day i send out a little prayer on my twitter and facebook page. i get messages from people sometimes saying, is this really you? is this you who's sending this? and that -- you always -- there's a distance, right? it's amazing that we can connect with all these new people, but how are we connecting with them? it's a little bit superficial. >> those beeps you're hearing on your facebook page. >> yes. >> they're commenting right now. you better check in. >> new friends. >> how do we combat this, snaer if we have all of these trust issues where we lock our doors? growing up you wouldn't lock your doors a lot. you hear stories how you would go to the store, not worry about locking up your house. security alarms in your house. we're so distrustful. how do you turn it around? >> from a spiritual point of view, i would say there's only
4:47 am
one person you can trust, that's god. that's the ultimate answer. yes, it's good to have close friends who you can trust, a spouse you can trust. that means deciding that i'm going to spend time and give time to close friendships. we might not be able to trust everyone, but we can trust the people who we've made the effort to get to know very deeply. >> how important is it to actually work on this, work on trusting other people? because doesn't it in the end really hurt ourselves? >> you know, i think one way to work on it, i think it's very important to decide among those who you're closest to, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbors, siblings that you're not going to text all the time but you're going to actually pick up the phone and call. you're not going to just decide -- we're in touch constantly so we don't need dates or time together. that's not true. human beings need close contact, deeply getting to know each other in order to have that trust. trust builds confidence, faith and joy. >> have a meal with somebody instead of sending them a text

hello and good morning to you. it is sunday the 1st of december, 2013. i'm anna kooiman. we start with a fox news alert. the death of "fast and furious" star paul walker rocking hollywood this morning. the actor killed in an horrific car crash. we have the breaking details and reaction from his friends, family and the stars. and the white house claiming healthcare.gov is back on track declaring victory. is it justified? some say the administration is trying out a new strategy, claim they won, fix it later. we'll tell you. and a utah bishop making this shocking transformation becoming unrecognizable to his church members all to teach members of his congregation a lesson in compassion. how did he do it and the lesson straight ahead.
5:01 am
"fox & friends" hour three starts right now. welcome to "fox & friends" on this sunday morning. if i came in in a beard and a winter hat, would you recognize me? >> are you kidding? i'd immediately put you under arrest. >> that's how it usually comes around. >> no, come on. we'd welcome you with open arms here on the cheery curvy couch. good morning, anna b. kooiman. >> good morning to you tucker carlson and clayton. >> we have some tragic news. paul walker is dead. >> walker was ride in a friend's porsche when it kprashd into a light poll and killed. >> walker was best known for his role in the "fast and furious" movie series. he appeared in all of those films including the seventh one. he was an avid race car driver and a known adrenaline junkie on and off the screen.
5:02 am
he was known for his charity work. he was about to attend a charity event for his organization reach out worldwide when the crash happened. >> a photographer snapped this picture of him getting into that car. this is the last known picture of him alive. >> gosh. >> from what i saw, it was when roger was backing the car into the garage, paul wanted to go for a ride. they went for the ride and that was the last we saw of them. >> well, hollywood is reacting this morning. van diesel says this on instagram, brother, i will miss you very much. i am absolutely speechless. heaven has gained a new angel. rest in peace. and denise richards tweeted, shocked over the news about paul walker. so sad. my heart goes out to his family and loved once. he was a kind and beautiful soul. and james vanderby tweeted this, thoughts and prayers tonight are with paul walkers's friends and family. walker was 40 years old.
5:03 am
he leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter. >> when authorities got up to that car they said they couldn't recognize any of the bodies in the car. it was on fire at the time and that what happened was they noticed the ground around the car had like donuts, figure 8s from spinning out the car tires and burned rubber. they weren't clear if it was actually from that car or not but clearly speed was a factor. >> if there's a lesson here, there's a less soon in every death and life, you never know. he was taking a quick drive around the street to test out the car and it ended. >> right before the charity event. only 300 yards from where everyone was gathering at this tent. >> don't hold back. if you love someone, tell them now. >> yeah. unbelievable. more on that coming up in the show. less than an hour ago, the obama administration set to give a progress report on the problem blogged owe bbama care website.
5:04 am
peter doocy with the latest. >> tucker, federal officials said by this morning's deadline healthcare.gov would be working smoothly for a vast majority of users, but i am not one of them because after filling out most of an application this morning, a screen informs me that the ver if i case system is temporarily unavailable. that is the way that the healthcare.gov portal confirms that everything that you have entered into the application is true. another screen says that problem should be resolved in the next 24 hours. so that was it. end of the road for this application this morning. there was another problem with the application though earlier on. one of the first screens wanted to know if a navigator owe or an insurance agent was helping me fill out the application. i clicked the application that none of these people were here with me and then the banner on the next screen said that i told the website that another person
5:05 am
was, in fact, standing with me helping me with the application. all of this this morning fueling congressional calls for healthcare.gov to come off line for good. if we just sit back and just hope it falls apart, it's the wrong thing. if it's teetering near the edge of the cliff, we should go ahead and push it over. >> the federal officials will holds a conference call later this morning to provide an update on how things are progressing at healthcare.gov. they said last week their goal was for 50,000 consumers to be able to use the website simultaneously. that would equal 800 thourks people in a day. that capacity they'll need to enroll just under 7 million people in the next 120 days. back to you in new york. peter, are you sure there wasn't a navigator hovering around in the newsroom that you didn't see, another person? >> if there was, i would be very creeped out because i couldn't see them. >> maybe the web side knew something you didn't. >> that's the thing about navigators, very stealthy.
5:06 am
peter doocy in washington. the person put in charge of creating the 24 hour war room where 300 people are making sure the back end is up and running, he said by the deadline it would be fully functional. those were his words, fully functional. according to their goals to their internal goals and metrics that means 80% of the people would be able to buy health insurance. this works. you are what you say you are. reality doesn't matter if the press goes along with it. so if you say this is a huge success, chances are it will be reported that way. >> like being able to declare a victory. the same thing came from kathleen sebelius a week ago. instead of saying it would be fully functional on this date and said that users were going to notice a drastic difference -- a drastic change in the way that it was functioning. >> so what specifics are we talking about here? they may have downplayed it in
5:07 am
an effort to drive some sort of media coverage on this. they said they're hoping 50,000 will be able to get on this. 50,000 in peak traffic times. they said, hey, we overshot expectations. 800,000 people are able to get online. they're able to get on the website, faster loading times, screens loading in less than a second but what they're not telling you is all the back end infrastructure is still not working. the applications that peter was talking about are arriving at the insurance company's website and on their desks with all kinds of errors. so you're having these insurance adjusters having to call people to confirm pieces of information on the applications like why is your phone number wrong? simple stuff. why are you -- >> and the part to pay insurance companies hasn't even been built yet. it's expected to be said and done spring of next year. >> at some point if you throw enough money at a website and get enough tech people in the room, you can probably fix it.
5:08 am
they'll probably fix the obama care website. it's obama care yourself that you ought to be worried about. "the wall street journal" said the core problem is the way this system, this law is set up. it's set up not to provide health care more cheaply for the average person. it's set up to redistribute wealth. a lot of people in the words of the journal are paying for first class seats in order to fly coach. you'll get fewer options, less good outcomes in order that the people who voted for the president get health insurance without palg f >> those folks who didn't vote for it, the majority of folks losing their coverage are small business and middle class folks and i quote the piece, they took responsibility for their own health care without government aid. they did this themselves without the small business. >> can you imagine? >> unlike people in the job basis testimony, they paid after tax dollars to get their own health insurance which is now being ripped from them and now they're being forced to subsidize those who don't have
5:09 am
health insurance. >> yeah. officially what the wall street journal website may be saying is the obama care may be bad but this is worse. even if the website is fixed the public is learning that insurance costs are more in return for worse coverage. regulators mandated a very rich level of essential health benefits that all plans in the individual market must cover regardless of cost. >> the point was never to make sure that you had better health care at a cheaper cost. that's not achievable when the government starts medaling. the whole point was to level the playing field. it was to redistribute wealth. that's been their goal from day one. i wish we would just say it outloud. >> it wonders if the ideology is a thing of the past once the public realizes that when big government is in your wallet, in your backyard, at your kitchen
5:10 am

5:18 am
bedroom communities coming into the city, coming in for presumably a lot of the christmas festivities here. we'll keep our eye on this. this information coming into our newsroom at this hour. >> it sounds like it could be worse than we know now. we'll keep you updated. later today the white house will announce the details to the fixes to healthcare.gov. even if they meet their deadline, could it be too little too late? joining us to weigh in is chris wallace of "fox news sunday." >> the white house is saying the launch, relaunch of the website is a success. is this accepted in washington? >> well, look, people have to wait and see and probably a lot of them will check it out for themselves to see as peter doocy has been reporting, it's not problem free but as you suggest, the white house will say that the website can handle 50,000 people at one time, 800,000 over the course of a day. but, you know, look, there are still a lot of problems and it's not just a website issue.
5:19 am
one of the issues is that the back end of the website has not been fixed. it's sending a lot of erroneous information to insurers. they still amazingly enough haven't built the system to actually pay insurers to process payments to insurers. i would think the insurers would care about that. then there were a lot of other problems, cancellations in the individual market, cancellations in the employer market, both small and big businesses. then we're also finding out because they're trying to cut rates they're excluding a lot of doctors and hospitals. so, i mean, there are going to be a lot of problems with obama care. in terms of making any kind of judgment, you're going to have to wait three months, six months, nine months to see do people feel the system is working out for them or it's not working out for them. too easy to tell at this point. >> at the very least, on a weekday and not on a weekend. chris, the press conference is coming up at 9:00 this morning. what kind of spin do you think we'll hear from the white house on this because the problems are
5:20 am
still pretty big problems. >> i think they're going to say -- first of all, they'll say, look, this is not a drop dead day, that the deadline is being over emphasized. the president set the deadline. they'll say it's a process and they'll continue to fix this. you'll hear although they won't say it in these words, we've declared victory and we're meeting our goals. look, they won't be the judges of this. each individual person as they have to deal with the whole obama care structure will decide whether or not this helps them or hurts them. >> on "fox news sunday" we'll talk to peter doocy. we'll have mira tandin, the center for american progress. , she helped write the american progress. we'll talk foreign policy with general michael hayden about

5:46 am
great. how did you conduct the actual social experiment? what did you do and how did your congress gr congregants respond? >> one hour before i went to the church and hobbled around the entrance of the church and tried to wish people a happy thanksgiving. i did have a poster that said need food or money and had various people as they entered into the church confront me and some avoided me. and then after the church service had started i made my way into the chapel and walked down the aisle to the front pew and made myself comfortable and i think made a lot of people uncomfortable and then about a half hour into the church meeting there was only one individual in there, my second counselor, who acts as an assistant to me, that was aware of this little experiment, and i approached the pulpit and he
5:47 am
asked if it would be okay if i got up and said a few words to express my thanks. i got up as a homeless man and began to recite a verse out of our him book, have i done any good in the world today, and then thanked the members of the congregation for their kindness that they had shown me. there were some that did show me some kindness, especially some children, and that i wanted to give the money back or some of the money back to the church to show mia preesh yags as a homeless man and then i pugd my wig and glasses off and exposed myself as the bishop. >> what was their rea beings? i have to ask, i'm curious, what do you think accounts for the uncomfortable nature of the congregants as they were coming in and avoiding? did they have some discussion or self-reflection? i'm curious what motivates to be avoiding? >> there are many things. there's obviously the safety of the ward members. there are some people that approached me that asked me to leave the property and told me i wasn't welcome there.
5:48 am
and after this experiment they were very, very -- they felt very a shamed and felt very bad but one of them that did that actually was trying to protect the members of the congregation because there had been some incidents prior where people had had their purses snatched and such and so i certainly didn't want to judge them but we just don't know where people have been and what's -- what lends their viewing these things through. >> right. i guess we learned not to judge a book by its cover in a true form there. hopefully in your suburb of salt lake city the message will spread across the country. bishop david musselman, thank you for your time. >> thank you. coming up on the show, top story this morning, hollywood still reeling from the death of paul walker. the president has had every excuse for every obama care glitch since day one. if the white house wants to say the website works, herman cane

iter been a debacle since day one. the president has an excuse for every setback. >> it's hard to do it in one state, it's harder to do it in all 50 states, especially when the governors of a bunch of states and half of congress aren't trying to help. for example, we found out there have been timed this morning where the site has been running more slowly than it normally will. the reason is because more than one million people visited healthcare.gov before 7:00 in the morning. well, that's not true. now, the white house claims the website is back on track,
5:53 am
running perfectly. we've got the top five excuses the administration has used for the botched rollout and why they might not work anymore. here to help us do that is fox radio talk show host herman cain. thank you for joining us. >>tucker, thanks. >> i'm going to run through the excuses and why you don't think they're very effective. the first and most commonly used is congressional republicans have somehow sabotaged the law. why does that not work? >> that dog won't hunt. let me give you two reasons. number one, no republicans voted for the affordable, aka, unaffordable care act. and secondly, when the shutdown was going on, republicans voted to repeal or delay obama care 40 times. they were criticized and ostracized by harry reid and the democrats. they tried to stop the train
5:54 am
wreck, the republicans did, and more people are aware of the fact. >> fwhb two, states refusing to participate in obama care. why is this not a valid excuse? >> because some states were simply saying, number one, we don't thing this is the right solution. and they so far have proved to be correct. and number two, they knew that they had a better chance of providing for those without insurance if they could control their own destiny, including medicaid. because if states had gone along with this fiasco, they would have had to expand eligibility for medicaid. we're seeing the few people who get through the website, they're now being dumped onto medicaid as a default. >> and where are the doctors to treat them? and number three, website glitches. the website has a few bugs. >> right, and my dog ate the homework. look, earlier in my career, i
5:55 am
was a technology executive. even on my own website, herm hermancane.com, we have handled more traffic at times than we see, and all you need is one capable perve to watch the traffic and you can expand what they call the portal. the american people are waking up to this. when you look at a lot of other successful sites and how they work, you don't hear these excuses. that's all it is, an excuse. >> number four, high website traffic. people love obama care so much, too many are going to the website. valid? >> not valid at all. when you consider number one, they hope to sign up 7 million people. they thought within the first month, they were going to get 500,000, and they claim thought got a million people going inin inquire. well, if all they were doing was inquiring, that should not have shut down the website. there again, there are enough tech savvy people out there,
5:56 am
tucker, that know that that's just an empty excuse also. >> and februanumber five is ins companies, but we're out of time. i hope you'll join us again to explain why blaming insurance companies isn't an excuse. >> up next, a fox news alert. a train heading to one of the busiest terminals derails outside of new york city. and a brand new poll shows americans just don't trust one another anymore. father john has an idea why that may be the case. tell you what he says.

6:01 am
a metro spokeswoman confirming four cars are off the track. there were initial reports the cars were in the water. as you can see from this photo here, at least judging from this, it looks like one of the trains is just teetering on the edge. all this happened around 7:20 this morning in the bronx. that's north of new york city. it happened as the train was headed around a sharp curve. it leapt poughkeepsie earlier this morning, en route to new york city's grand central station. so many happening when so many tourists are blockiflocking to g apple. >> early this morning. as rick was telling me off camera, good thing the train may not be sitting in the water. if it's teetering in the water, water temperature in the 40s, keep in mind, in that area, and we see ladders on top of the trains as rescue workers try to get to the people.
6:02 am

whoa. >> those are your headlines on a jam-packed sunday morning. the first of december, 2013. also in progress right now, a conference call for reporters and others given by the administration to tout the great success of what is in fact the relaunch of the obama care website which went back online yesterday. the white house saying this has been an unequivocal success, declaring victory, but many, many, many concerns remain about how well the website works and also the security. you're putting a lot of personal information online. is it safe is the question. >> they're on this conference call as we speak. listening in right now. curious to see what sort of questions we're able to get from the administration this morning. peter is involved in that as well. morgan wright, a security tech expert said this on fox news channel about what is still left out there. all of your personal information which hasn't been addressed. sure, the website looks pretty, but your personal information is
6:08 am
up for grabs. >> one of the memorandums issued by the cio who had to sign off on the authorizization to operate signed off on a finding of high that said the risk potential is limitless, and gave them until may 31st, 2014, to fix it. that means right now, that threat and risk potential is still limitless on november 30th. healthcare.gov has 300,000 lines of code. facebook covers 327 million daily active user users. >> when you're hearing information meant to go to insurance companies is erroneously going to other places, it makes you wonder if you want to give your social security, tax records, and other things. >> they built the website that doesn't work. you trust them with your critical information? a lot of people are saying i'm not sure you're competent enough. not that it's like a nigerioan
6:09 am
e-mail scan, but they'll leave it open to phishing by foreign governments or criminals. >> it's not only our lack of trust in government, it's our general lack of trust. the new study out this morning highlights american distrust in each other. it's hit an all-time low. look at this. trust in decline since 1972 to 2012. most people can be trusted. 46% said that in '72. now down to 32%. can't be too careful. 50% back in 1972. now, it's up to 64%. >> we had father john on the show earlier this morning to talk a little bit about this and provide some thoughts. he was saying he believes of course you're putting your trust in god, the number one place to do this, but having a sense of community and having actual discussions, actual meals with human beings, learning what makes that person tick so you have empathy for another human being. >> part of that is because of technology, we're on social
6:10 am
media, facebook and twitter. people admit they don't know half of their facebook friends, but he mentioned we have become such a transient society. i was born in the south, now i'm in the north. all my roots are back there, not here. that's another reason. do you know your neighbors? i don't know if you do. i used to know them. >> i love my neighbors. >> this is something larger. people are losing faith in each other and in basic institutions. people we used to respect, we no longer do. things we took for granted, like democracy, technology, capitalism. i don't think they should lose faith, but they are. people are very suspicious. my theory, there are a lot of factors. one is, though, when government tries to do too much, things it's not good at, it makes people cynical about its ability to do anything. there's certainly a rise in cynicism, for sure. >> let us know what you think about the story. we're getting more information about the commuter train derailment in new york city. we're hearing multiple injuries right now. their spokeswoman confirm

now. we're getting new images of the commuter train that derailed here in new york city. metro north spokeswoman is confirming there are four or five cars off the tracks. about 100 firefighters have rushed to the scene. we can now confirm there are indeed fatalities. >> marjorie anders, spokesman for the metro north joins us on the phone. we're getting different reports coming in. can you confirm to us this morning, are any of the passenger cars -- are they in the water or any cars in the water? >> no, there are no train cars in the water.
6:16 am
this is an area where the hudson line curves, and this was a southbound train coming out of poughkeepsie. it had seven coaches or passenger cars being pushed at the north end by one diesel locomotive. it appears the first four or five cars derailed. where the curve -- where the tracks curve sharply to the east. >> marjorie, we're seeing reports there have been fatalities, possibly as many as four. can you confirm that? >> i can't confirm the number, but i believe we're going to have some fatalities. >> this is an area of the rail that had problems this summer with a garbage train that had also had problems at this particular curved area. do you know if speed was a factor? something else on the lines this morning? what do you know about that? >> i can't say anything at all about the cause of this accident. it was not the same area where
6:17 am
the derailment of the garbage train occurred. it was about 100 yards north of the spot in the station. it was not in the rock cut area where the garbage derailment occurred. >> we know you're a metro north spok spokesperson, but give us an idea of what the scene there looks like. we're hearing 100 firefighters are on scene. this is a big deal. >> yes, well, i would hope at least 100 firefighters are on the scene. it is a big deal. it's a horrible tragedy, and we're getting great cooperation from fdny and nypd, and you know, local hospitals. and emergency service personnel. it's going to be a very long time before this is cleared up. >> it sounds like it. what does this mean for travel for everyone else? >> well, the harlem and new haven lines are running fine. the hudson line is not. i don't know if -- we'll
6:18 am
probably set up some kind of a shuttle service, certainly tomorrow, to get people to areas. subway stations, so that has not been determined at this point. but we're not going to have a normal rush hour tomorrow. >> i hate even to suggest this, marjorie, but are we going under the assumption this is an accident. have there been threats against metro north? >> i can't comment on that. >> also one of the big questions is how many people were onboard this train? do we have a sense? it was 5:45 in the morning when the train left. >> right, the only good news is it is not, you know, a hugely crowded train. i mean, it was the second train out of poughkeepsie in the morning. it left at 5:54 a.m. it was due in grand central at 7:43. that was the train involved in this horrific accident. and you know, there's plenty of people on it, but it's not a rush-hour train of thousands and
6:19 am
thousands. >> thanks a lot. we appreciate the information you could give us. thanks a lot for coming on. >> you're welcome. >> marjorie anders. spokeswoman for metro north who is not able to comment on what exactly caused the accident, and she also pointed out it was a little further away from where the other train derailment happened this summer, the garbage train that derailed in a rock-cut area which was north of the other area. not the same exact spot, but around a curved area. you wonder if speed, other conditions on the rail caused the problem. >> numbers are still coming in. initially, there were multiple injuries, now hearing a confirmation of fatalities. we have heard as many as four, but we do not have confirmation on that number, so we're not comfortable giving that. these are live pictures. when we were talking to marjorie, she was telling us it was a southbound train, seven passenger cars pushed by one
6:20 am
diesel locomotive and four trains were derailed. they were going around a curve as well. >> the most ominous thing a spokesperson can say. we can confirm the fatalities, but we don't know the number. we expect the story to become more complicated. >> it's a fluid situation, getting more into the news room. as it becomes available with all the firefighters on the scene this morning, we'll have much more as "fox & friends" continues this morning. and another fox news alert, other top story, hollywood reeling from the shocking death of paul walker. we'll have the latest news from kevin mckarthdy who recently sat down with the atctor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. with the actor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. ay who recently s down with the actor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. ry who recently s down with the actor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. ty who recently s down with the actor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. hy who recently s down with the actor. his perspective coming up about his new movie. it's so much better that way.

back to that fox news alert. the new york post is reporting four passengers onboard a commuter train headed to new york city are dead. the train en route to one of the country's busiest terminals derailed in new york city, and there are four or five cars off the track, and at least 150 firefighters now on scene. earlier on "fox & friends," we spoke with marjorie anders, the spokesperson for metro north. >> it's a horrible tragedy, and we're getting great cooperation from fdny and nypd, and you know, local hospitals and emergency service personnel. so it's going to be a very long time before this is cleared up. >> ooh, so we don't know the full parameters of this disaster. we do know that a train is down, four or five cars. it had quite a few passengers on it, coming south from
6:32 am
poughkeepsie this holiday weekend. we do know there are fatalities. the new york post reporting four or five. initial reports suggested one of the cars was in the water. thank heaven that's not true. looking at pictures on the left of the train on its side. more than 100 firefighters on the scene. >> so close to the water, the water temperature hovering around 41, 42 degrees right now. thank goodness the trains did not hit the water. we don't know how many passengers were inside the passenger cars as they plowed into the ground. >> when we spoke with marjorie anders, we did ask here if it was safe to say this was an accident. she would not confirm that or deny that, either. but you do see that it was going around a pretty big curve there. she also told us it was a seven-passenger cars pushed by one diesel locomotive when four or five of those cars were derailed. four passengers killed,
6:33 am
according to the new york post. >> it was an early morning passenger train, so there was already a train that left earlier that had other passengers on it. fortunately, it was so early, there might not have been so many people onboard this train. again, holiday travel is going to be disrupted, and normal commuter traffic is going to be disrupted. they're going to set up shuttles to get people to and from new york city tomorrow for work. one of the busiest times of the year. >> and other stories making headlines i want to get to. it claims to be a grassroots movement against walmart paying their workers low wages. the ones being paid were the protesters themselves. unions dished out cash and one member was caught on camera admitting it. >> local 7. what?
6:34 am
>> well, that person there, one of about 200 protesters at wall part in colorado on black friday. one of many gatherings across the country. better late than never. 34 years after a crime, a mother taking to facebook apologizing to the victim. michael goodman said he accosted him for a bus pass in the '70s. he was arrested but claims he always felt bad about the crime. when he came across his man's name on facebook and saw the picture, he decided to apologize. bell responded, accepting the apology. >> actress roseanne barr releasing a profanity released tweet. things are not going well, and in a series of tweets, she claims she has been disrespected and vowed never to work in television again. >> women who have achieved far
6:35 am
less than me are allowed to white their own shows, but i'm constantly forced to work with a sensoring show runner. what do you think about the twitter rant? and curt has this to say. i lost any respect for roseanne barr when she threw out the first pitch at wrigley stadium and then proceeded to spit. >> tim said, if she never does tv again, that is great. i never could stand the woman. good riddance. they're nothing compared to the profanity laced ones. keep those comments coming. big news today. >> hours after north korea released video of merril newman admitting to hostile acts and apologizing for crimes during the korean war, the u.s. is demanding his release? is this enough, or should the administration do more to demand his freedom? gordon, also good to have you, and great perspective you have on that very troubling region.
6:36 am
what should president obama be doing this morning to try to secure merril's release? >> the first thing, i think he needs to talk about it, not just the spokeswoman, who spoke yesterday. almost pleading terms. it wasn't a demand. i think we need the president of the united states himself to say this. also, we need to do other things. for instance, we can actually be cutting north korean banks off from the financial system. we should impose a travel ban to north korea and add them back to the state department's list of terrorism sponsoring states. there are other things we can do, but we need to have stick, not carrot here. >> we were very pleased to hear that the ambassador was allowed to pay the first visit to meryl. merril reports he's being well treated and that the food is good. that's coming from the family. as you pointed out to me, gordon, it's fascinating the number of p.o.w.s from the korean war that are still unaccounted for. they use these to sort of taunt
6:37 am
the american public and taunt america that they have access to these i.d.s, maybe not that they're kept alive, but they know this information. >> there are hundreds of unaccounted for p.o.w.s. we know of some of them because their i.d.s are shown as war trophies. this is the taunting of the united states. this is a very difficult issue, but it's brought up because merril newman is a korean war veteran, and we think he was detained because he was trying to see some of his comrades from the korean war during his tour last month in north korea. >> the president should be speaking loudly and carrying a big stick, but it appears the president is quiet. >> there's a bipartisan consensus in washington when you deal with the north koreans, you have to act in a soft voice. we saw this in the last administration. merril newman is the seventh american detained since 2009. we have to stop this. basically, the north koreans are
6:38 am
grabbing americans as hostages, using them for political purposes. this has got to end. >> one of the last times this happens, president clinton went over there. did president obama learn from that. >> i think he did. as president clinton and president carter in 2010 bringing back people who were detained, so north korea detained more people. and now kenneth bay, the obama administration wisely did nothing really to bring back or give north korea an incentive. that's important because we need to stop this cycle of taking americans. >> is flexing military force off the table for the united states? >> well, at this point, we don't need to do that because there's so many other things we have the ability to do that we haven't been doing. and really, i think we need to show some determination because that's the only way the north koreans understand. they're still fighting the korean war, and we're not. starving them, though, with fnlss, though, it seems kim
6:39 am
jong-un really already starves his people. >> it will hit the regime in pyongyang and other cities that constitute the kim family apparatus. we need to hurt those people. in terms of north korean people, we could give aid if it was monitored, but we don't really do that now. this is a separate issue, but we need to target the regime, and we have not been doing that. >> great point. gordon chang, great to see you. thank you so much. we appreciate it. busy news day. coming up here, martin bashir's comments about sarah palin going unnoticed by msnbc. he been punished, but alec baldwin got a pink slip. is that fair? and a fox news alert. a commuter train derailing, and fox news confirming there are fatalities on the commuter train near new york city. we'll have a live update when we return. good job!

6:41 am
6:42 am
two full servings of vegetables is a really big deal.u with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so call your doctor right away. tamiflu treats the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. so don't wait. attack the flu virus at its source. ask your doctor about tamiflu, prescription for flu.
6:43 am
an update to a fox news alert. the new york post reporting four passengers onboard a train to new york city are dead. it derail eed shortly past 7:00 a.m. at least 150 firefighters are on scene. we'll have more on this as it develops. tucker, over to you. >> thanks a lot. lara logan, alec baldwin, martin bashir, all in the spotlight for media crimes they committed or are accused of committing, but only two are facing real repercussions. martin bashir made over the top comments bubt sarah palin, but unlike the other two, he kept his job. where is the justice? here to discuss this is howard
6:44 am
kurtz. >> there is a lack of justice. lara logan does a story that embarrassing the obama administration. apparently, it was a flawed story. alec baldwin makes comments, supposedly critical of gay people, he gets fired, and martin bashir attacks sarah palin, and he's fine. >> alec baldwin brought up the martin bashir comparison after msnbc blew up his show after the blow-up with a photographer outside his apartment. he did lose his temper and curse at the guy, but that wads on the street. he was angry. maybe you just suspend him, cut him slack, where bashir read his scathing personal, disgusting atact against sarah palin from a teleprompter. it was graphic, and they have not taken any disciplinary action that we know of, hasn't even condemned the comments. >> it was scripted and graphic. this was not some rogue event.
6:45 am
this is not something he ad-libbed out of rage. this is something his producers knew about. a lot of people knew he was going to say this on air and they didn't stop him. >> in the case of "60 minutes" not only has lara logan been suspended indefinitely as punishment for this badly botched benghazi report, but her producer got the same punishment. in the case of alec baldwin, initially he was suspended and now he's not coming back to do his weekly show for msnbc. you have to wonder why it is they have doubled down in terms of not touching or saying anything to martin bashir. i suppose it might have something do with the fact that the target was sarah palin, a conservative woman, woo is probably not well liked by the people who watch msnbc. >> of course, the audience agrees completely. back to cbs, compare this to what happened to dan rather who lost his job for falsely
6:46 am
reporting president bush dodged vietnam. it took a while for them to act after it was obvious to us that the story was false. compare that to the immediate response to the story that embarrassed the obama administration. >> things move more quickly these days. it did take time for rather to lose his job, but the other key difference is at least there was an outside independent investigation of that story that rather did about george w. bush and the national guard which led to the action here. we have no outside investigation, an internal inquiry led by a cbs producer which did find fault with the story and logan, but a different situation when you're dealing with it in-house. >> are we sure the logan story was false? >> cbs said the security contractor who claimed on "60 minutes" he had been at the compound the night of the fatal attack and had scaled the wall
6:47 am
and beaten up fighters, 60 minutes is now convinced he was not telling the truth. he told a different story to his bosses and the fbi. he has severe credibility problems which makes me wonder how the story got on the air. while i admire what logan did in the past, riving her life in war zones, this was a fail. . >> some of the best stories have flaky sources, unfortunately. howard, thanks for joining us. be sure to tune in to media buzz. he'll sit down with kirsten powers. she'll talk about her religious awakening. i'll be watching. and fix or fail. the obama care website deadline has come and now it's gone. will the problems continue? peter got an update. he was on a conference call hosted by the administration. he's got the latest for us live from washington coming up.
